Big fan of your products. Happy to see you entering the VW scene. There's a severe lack of 17" performance-oriented wheels for the Mk7 cars.
A couple of related questions on available finishes between the flow-formed wheels and the forged wheels: why are painted finishes the only offerings with the flow-formed wheels vs. a polished finish being available with the forged wheels? I assume the polished wheels have a clear-coat finish- is this accurate? How does the provided finish hold up on the polished wheels vs. that on the painted finish wheels?
I think 17x8 or 17x8.5 are just as important. I fear 17x9 will rub and require spacers.From the survey results we have seen thus far, the MK7 community has echoed your point in regards to the lack of 17" wheels in the current market. We are currently developing a 17x9" wheel that will hopefully address all of the significant pain-points we have discussed with various MK7 GTI and R owners who have taken our wheel survey.
Any idea how long it'll take to get the wheels produced and available for sale? I don't want to wait much longer for track wheels.

Will the EC-7 be offered in 17” ?
This design has a more generous BBK friendly dimensions compared to the ARC-8. Correct?
This, but 17x9 et38-43, a little poke is ok, but the goal is arbys, lots of meat. Additionally, I'd be interested in a cast or flow formed, cheap, snow/winter wheel. Hell, if I could find some 17 inch steelies that fit I'd do that. I mean no more than maybe 150 per wheel, as small as possible for some studded snows, but still able to clear at least the Golf R brakes, maybe even the Macan 4 piston swap with mk6 R rotors.Would love to see an EC-7R in 18x9 ET 43 which would work great for both GTI and R for the people that want 18” in a 255/265.
Plenty of room for brakes in this size too
